11th Sunday – What in your life needs pruning? God wants us to be prepared – not just for power outages and rainstorms – but for eternal life. If you want to give a good harvest at the end, you need to do some pruning now.
10th Sunday – No sooner have Adam and Eve decide sinned against God then they begin to turn against each other. We are a house divided when we reject God’s will. Jesus teaches us that God’s will is the path to a united heart and a united home.
Corpus Christ – I was given the gift of priesthood so I could give it away. The Eucharist teaches us that you are a gift. Don’t use others and let them use you. Instead, the Eucharist teaches us how to give ourselves away.
Holy Trinity – The One God, Lord of the whole Universe, is also our God, a community of persons. Baptism invites us into God’s community of love. Live your life, and every moment, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Pentecost – God’s Spirit fills us with love, shapes us in His image, and restores us to Communion with one other. Ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray for others in the Spirit. The gift of the Spirit grows to the degree that we give it away.
Ascension – Jesus returns to the spiritual realm where he came from. He is present to us through the Spirit that dwells in our hearts. May the eyes of your heart be enlightened so you can live your daily life from Jesus’ eternal perspective.
